Psalm 22-24

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Psalm 22

My El, my El, why have you forsaken me?

Why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?

2 O my Elohim, I cry in the daytime, but you answer not;

And in the night season, and am not silent.

3 But you are holy,

O you that inhabit the praises of Israel.

4 Our fathers trusted in you:

They trusted, and you did deliver them.

5 They cried to you, and were delivered:

They trusted in you, and were not put to shame.

6 But I am a worm, and no man;

A reproach of men, and despised of the people.

7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn:

They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

8 Commit yourself to Yahweh; let him deliver him:

Let him rescue him, since he delights in him.

9 But you are he that took me out of the womb;

You made me trust when I was upon my mother’s breasts.

10 I was cast upon you from the womb;

You are my El since my mother bare me.

11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near;

For there is none to help.

12 Many bulls have compassed me;

Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

13 They gape upon me with their mouth,

As a ravening and a roaring lion.

14 I am poured out like water,

And all my bones are out of joint:

My heart is like wax;

It is melted within me.

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd;

And my tongue clings to my jaws;

And you have brought me into the dust of death.

16 For dogs have compassed me:

A company of evil-doers have enclosed me;

They pierced my hands and my feet.

17 I may count all my bones;

They look and stare upon me.

18 They part my garments among them,

And upon my garment they cast lots.

19 But be not you far off, O Yahweh:

O my strength, hurry to help me.

20 Deliver my soul from the sword,

My darling from the power of the dog.

21 Save me from the lion’s mouth;

And from the horns of the wild-oxen,

You have answered me.

22 I will declare your name to my brethren:

In the middle of the assembly I will praise you.

23 You that fear Yahweh, praise him;

All you the seed of Jacob, glorify him;

And stand in awe of him, all you the seed of Israel.

24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;

Neither has he hid his face from him;

But when he cried to him, he heard.

25 Of you comes my praise in the great assembly:

I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied;

They shall praise Yahweh that seek after him:

Let your heart live forever.

27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to Yahweh;

And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before you.

28 For the kingdom is Yahweh’s;

And he is the ruler over the nations.

29 All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship:

All they that go down to the dust shall bow before him,

Even he that cannot keep his soul alive.

30 A seed shall serve him;

It shall be told of Yahweh to the next generation.

31 They shall come and shall declare his righteousness

To a people that shall be born, that he has done it.



A Psalm of David


Psalm 23

Yahweh is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;

He leads me beside still waters.

3 He restores my soul:

He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil; for you are with me;

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies:

You have anointed my head with oil;

My cup runs over.

6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness shall follow me all the days of my life;

And I shall dwell in the house of Yahweh forever.



A Psalm of David.


Psalm 24

The earth is Yahweh’s, and the fulness of it;

The world, and they that dwell in it.

2 For he has founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the floods.

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of Yahweh?

And who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He that has clean hands, and a pure heart;

Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood,

And has not sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive a blessing from Yahweh,

And righteousness from the Elohim of his salvation.

6 This is the generation of them that seek after him,

That seek your face, even Jacob.


7 Lift up your heads, O you gates;

And be you lifted up, you everlasting doors:

And the King of glory will come in.

8 Who is the King of glory?

Yahweh strong and mighty,

Yahweh mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O you gates;

Even lift them up, you everlasting doors:

And the King of glory will come in.

10 Who is this King of glory?

Yahweh of hosts,

He is the King of glory.
